Item Number: A7.ALEA1055B

This work is based on the folk music of composer Jan Vicar's native country. The five minute long piece is generated from Moravian lullabies chosen from the repertory of a folk singer, Zdena Hovorkova. The composer expanded the governing feature of Lydian mode, augmented fourth, into bi-tonality: a mother sings and rocks her baby (simple tune for the piano), but the child's dreaming comes from somewhere else (violin). From the Czech Republic, Jan Vicar (born 1949 in Olomouc) is a prolific composer whose compositions have been performed and recorded by leading Czech soloists, orchestras and choirs in the Czech Republic, United States, Canada, Japan and Europe. Publication sold with two scores and one part, allowing the soloist to rehearse from the score, but perform from the part to avoid awkward page turns.
